I Changed My Wedding Dress!

I promised you guys a wedding update yesterday but then didn't follow through with it because I actually hadn't finished doing what I wanted to do yet...so now that I am - here is my news: 
I changed my wedding dress!
I know some of you probably think I'm crazy but you only get married once, right?!  And although I loved my dress, I just didn't feel it was totally me.  I am keeping it though, and will probably wear it while in Italy as it is a beautiful summer dress.  Again, I'm not going to show you the exact dresses I picked but here's an indication of what my original style was and the one I changed to:
My first dress (this isn't it, but it's quite similar in style).  It is 100% silk, ivory/off-white in colour very drapey with an empire line waist and v-neck.  It's very bohemian/Grecian and although it's really pretty I think I just felt like I wanted something more formal and elegant.  
Here's the style of dress I changed to.  It's 100% ivory satin with a sweetheart neckline and completely figure-hugging.  The differences between my dress and Jessica's is that mine doesn't have a train or a belt detail and it's in ivory, not white.  

If I'm honest, I'm very relieved that I made this decision as it was weighing on my mind for a long time.  I bought my original dress back in January so I did leave it quite late (only 6 weeks till the big day!) but I'm happy I did it.  Jonathan was actually the one who encouraged me to do this, because he knew how uncertain I was about the original one.  He just asked me, "is that the dress of your dreams?" to which I replied "no", it was not.  I had a very clear idea in my head of what I wanted to change it to so I took a risk and it worked out! :)  My advice to anyone would be to always go with your gut feeling with regards your wedding day...like I said you only get married once (or at least, you go into marriage thinking that way!) and it's YOUR wedding, not anybody else's!  I now feel like a big weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I can get on with the rest of the planning!

Stay Stylish!
xoxo
